Is it Anaheim or Tustin for the Angels? The mayor of Tustin does not believe that. It has been only a week since Angels owner Arte Moreno met with Tustin officials about the possibility of moving his team there, and yet Tustin Mayor Al Murray said late Tuesday he had heard that Moreno had talked with the city of Irvine as well. There have been no discussions between the Angels and Irvine, representatives for both sides said Wednesday. "The Angels have not met with the city of Irvine at this time," Angels spokeswoman Marie Garvey said.

One potential site would be the decommissioned Marine Corps Air Station, which would be accessible via the 5, 405 and 55 Freeways and is across the street from the Tustin Metrolink train station.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Angels owner Arte Moreno described negotiations with Anaheim for a new stadium lease as "at a stalemate," but stopped short of saying he was aggressively pursuing a new home for the team. "We haven't crossed that line yet," Moreno said Friday during the team's first spring-training workout. "In September, we thought we had an outline for a deal … but the reality is, we have not been able to get it done. " The Anaheim City Council approved the framework of a deal in which the Angels would spend $150 million to renovate 48-year-old Angel Stadium, the fourth-oldest park in baseball, in exchange for a 66-year, $1-a-year lease to develop 155 acres of land in the parking lot. The team's current lease expires in 2029.

PHOENIX - The price of general-admission parking at Dodger Stadium will return to what it was when the Dodgers were owned by Frank McCourt. The increase from $10 to $15 is part of a plan to improve the flow of traffic into the ballpark, Dodgers President Stan Kasten said Friday. The Dodgers will continue offering $10 general-admission parking passes, but only to fans who purchase them in advance. “The main bottleneck we have is transactions at the gates,” Kasten said. “That was the first thing they wanted for us to tackle.

Two-time champion Chad Reed held off rookie Ken Roczen of Murrieta to win his second supercross race of the season Saturday night at Angel Stadium. This was the third and final season stop in Anaheim for the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series, and Reed also won at Angel Stadium two weeks ago. Roczen won the first Anaheim race Jan. 4, which opened the series' season. Supercross is the stadium version of off-road motorcycle racing, or motocross. On Saturday, Reed passed reigning champion Ryan Villopoto on the first lap of the 20-lap main event, then spent the rest of the race keep Roczen at bay. Roczen was able to get his KTM motorcycle alongside Reed's Kawasaki on the 10th lap, but Reed, 31, never relinquished the lead.
